Rear Fog light problem

Hi people

I have a problem (only our 2nd ever) on our 2011 FJCW. The warning light to say that the rear fog light has failed is coming on every now and again - a yellow picture of a rear fog light with an exclaimation mark. When the picture goes out after about 10 seconds, it leaves the tiny triangle at the bottom of the rev counter showing. The triangle, as you know, is there until the fault is rectified. However, when I switch the rear fog light on, it lights up ok and the little triangle goes out. When I do a vehicle check when the fault is on, the fault log again says the light is faulty. After the fault has cleared, the vehicle check is ok.

I have removed the fog light bulb and the connections look clean. I will renew the bulb tomorrow, just in case it's breaking down for any reason.

Your thoughts please..... Thanks

Could be a flickering bulb, either loose in the socket, not very good contact, loose wire or the bulb is on its way out?
